Advocates of Natural Beauty

Basking Ridge, New Jersey

THURS 4:00 - 7:00

SAT 11:00 - 3:00

Closing Reception: Sun, Feb. 26, 2:00 - 5:00

My painting is a scene from a long hike I took in the Ramapo Mountains.  The scenery was spectacular, magical, and inspiring, but at a certain point, I realized just how far I had to go to get back to my car.   That gave me the title "Miles to Go".  As tiring as it was, (hiking in snow is very tiring,) I enjoyed every minute out there.

"Woodland Reflections"
at the Sourlands Ecosystem Preserve
oil on linen on board, 7 x 11"
I'm still spending a lot of time in the woods, and that's where all my inspiration comes from these days. Half of the paintings that I have in this show are scenes very close to my home on the Sourland Mountain, the rest are a bit further north in the mountains of north Jersey.

On a personal note, I've recently joined the board of trustees at the Sourland Conservancy, where I'll be working to help preserve the unique character of this area.

Ellarslie Open 39


Joe Kazimierczyk
"Mirror Pool"
7x14 oil on board

 My painting "Mirror Pool" will be this year's Ellarslie Open at Ellarslie, the Trenton City Museum.  This is one of the best juried shows in the region and I'm happy to be part of it this year.

The exhibition runs June 25 to October 2, 2022. 

Artists and Members Reception: Saturday, June 25, 1-5 pm, awards announced at 4pm.  $10 in advance, $15 at the door.

Public Reception:  Sunday, June 26, 1-4 pm, free admission for all

Now about that title... mirror pools are very still, reflective bodies of water and I know that's not what I depict here.  But it's the first thing that came to mind and I think it's a good title for this painting, so I stand by it.
